Description

Historians have come to realize that Henry George exerted an important influence on the development of American Democratic thought. Numerous reformers of the Progressive Era acknowledged that their thinking had been vitally affected by an early reading of Progress and Poverty. His ethical analysis has attracted much favorable attention. In this book Steven B. Cord reviews the treatment accorded Henry George by American economists and historians from 1879 to the present and conclusion that, despite his widely recognized importance as a seminal figure in both history and economics, Henry George's ideas have not been well understood by many writers in those fields.
